Player of the week: The Big 12 named Sooner quarterback Landry Jones Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week on Monday. Jones threw for a school-record 554 yards against West Virginia in the Sooners’ 50-49 victory, breaking his own record of 505 set against Kansas State last season. Jones also tied his school-record single-game touchdown passes mark of six, originally set against Tulsa in 2009.
Jones has 15,624 career passing yards and needs 170 to overtake Texas Tech’s Graham Harrell (15,793) as the Big 12’s career leader in passing yards.
He is fifth in NCAA history and second in Big 12 history in career total offense with 15,262 yards. He needs 350 yards to bypass Harrell (15,611) for the all-time Big 12 lead in that category. He also owns 117 passing touchdowns, sixth all-time in NCAA history and second in Big 12 history.
Williams out: Bob Stoops said right tackle Darryl Williams will miss the rest of the regular season with a sprained MCL in his right knee.
“Hopefully he’ll be back for whatever bowl game there may be,” Stoops said.
Williams’ injury means sophomore Tyrus Thompson will make his third career start when the Sooners meet Oklahoma State on Saturday.
